I think a famous one was Chanda Rubin beating Jana Novotna after being down a set and 5-0, 40-0 down in the French Open several years ago.

The classics that we all remember:

Rubin defeats Novotna from something like 1-6 0-5 0-40. (French Open, 1995)

Mary Jo Fernandez defeats Sabatini from 1-6 0-5. (French Open, 1993 - some say Sabatini's career never recovered after that loss)

Kimiko Date defeats Sabatini from 1-6 0-5 in Miami SF, 1995 (see the above comment)
My scores are only from memory, so they may be wrong give or take a game or two. But those were definitely all classic comebacks/chokes.

Pierce vs Likhovtseva, last year's Kremlin Cup. Being down 0-6 at 3rd set tie-break, Pierce managed to score eight consecutive points. miraculous.

and then Juju vs Myskina at 2004 Olympics. I think Juju was down 1-5 at the last set but then defeat Myskina 7-5?. This loss haunted Myskina in her sleep the following months.

No. She had never been down a set, and she's 1-5 in the 3rd set.
